Biography of Chaz Jankel

A lot of Ian Dury fans will possibly associate Chaz's name with Ian's as he formed the Blockheads with Ian and and was co-writing and performing with him and the band for over 20 years. Since Ian passed on the Blockheads have been going through a period of transition as we adapt to the new scenario. Chaz embarked on OUT OF THE BLUE late 2000 primarily developing a couple of different themes. From then on it just -----evolved!

"One of the things I was certain about was that I wanted the music to be played by an acoustic quintet although finding the right combination of musicians took a while. On various occasions when I went to visit Ian Dury we would invariably end the day with a glass of something refreshing coupled with the music of say for example, Bill Evans, Jaki Byard, Art Blakey and Charlie Mingus not forgetting Patsy Kline and various heavy beats. Since then I've bought tons of jazz (I must slow down) and a fair number of romantic and modern classical cds from Mendelssohn to Scriabin. If I'm lucky some of that influence has infiltrated OUT OF THE BLUE. " Chaz Jankel
